    Default wow ! 5.3 -> 5.4 ->


    Hello dear people freebsd

    something wonderfull ( at least in my case ) happened
    since the last update of the base system on a sony vaio
    laptop ( CPU: Intel Pentium III (694.84-MHz 686-class CPU) )

    before, when the machine was compiling, it was getting
    at 82 degrees with 100% CPU

    now, with 100% CPU it gets at maximum 52 degrees.

    what happened between 5.3 and 5.4-PRERELEASE ?

    thanks alot,
    alex

    Default Xwrapper doesn't use .xinitrc, or does it?


    I have just rebuilt my system and a few things aren't as they used to
    be. When I try to start X with Xwrapper no xterms or other windows
    appear. Isn't Xwrapper starting the stuff in .xinitrc like "startx" used
    to do for me (but wont do, since it no longer has the authority to do
    so)??

    Isn't there some doentation for Xwrapper somewhere?

    /Andreas (using RELENG_5_3, if that matters)

    Interesting observation though.

    You want startx(1). The .xinitrc file is read by "xinit", btw.

    I used to start X using startx. Now it doesn't work for anybody but
    root. Of course I can set "the bit" on the X image, but I guessed there
    was a reason somebody invented Xwrapper.

    Hello,

    Totally un-scientific, but I have been watching tempurature the past few
    days with gkrellm. I thought your report sounded pretty fantastic, so I
    HAD to try it out. I made world, etc. And while making world,
    tempurature climbed rapidly to top tempurature of 144.5F.

    Since booting in to the new world, and running portmanager -u, as well
    as streaming, plenty of work to keep the system quite loaded, it took
    some time to get past 120F, and now seems to top out around ... 142.7F
    it says now. It took a long time to get past 140F.

    It seems that if thre IS a difference, that maybe it takes longer to
    build up heat now? Ah well . . .

    Thanks,
    -danny

    that was also my reaction. That is why I started to look for a explanation,
    but I am sure of it, not because of the software I use to check temperature,
    but specially from my hand.

    Untill the last update, the system was always getting to such temperatures
    as soon as it was compiling for a while ( 5 minutes ).
    And the temperature was really high because my hand on the laptop was simply
    more hot than it is in these days.
    I know its pretty empirical as a proof, but the laptop is not compiling
    since 2 days, and still the temperature is now at 52 degrees Celsius,
    Before, in the last 3 months, every time I compiled something for longer
    than 5 minutes, it reached high temperatures, really high :-0 !!!
     

    I think it hangs with the acpi system, but I cant tell.
    I hope at least this that this case may be of help for the community

    red d(r)eam(s)on,
    alex
